Random Coolness Found In Google Reader

While reading through my Google Reader (which is now working *yay*) I came across a very cool post by Kim at Sophisticated Dorkiness. She posted about The Typealyzer, a personality-type thingy that reads your blog and then analyses the blog writers personality. I had to give it a try, however my result was nowhere as cute as Kim’s chicky cartoon – I ended up with a shady looking backwoods mechanic :/ Will I never escape my tomboy-ish childhood?!  Ahhh well it was fun and interesting anyway :)


ISTP
ISTP - The Mechanics

The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment are masters of responding to challenges that arise spontaneously. They generally prefer to think things out for themselves and often avoid inter-personal conflicts.
The Mechanics enjoy working together with other independent and highly skilled people and often like seek fun and action both in their work and personal life. They enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars or working as policemen and fire-fighters.

Twitter seems to be the subject of the week, but it was Bermudaonion’s post here that made me realize that I had signed up for Twitter months ago, and didn’t really do anything with it. So last night I signed into my account and tried it again – there still doesn’t appear to be any real point to it, but it is a very entertaining web tool to fool around with.  My Twitter page is here!

Check out J.Kaye’s post here if you want to find out even more ways to enjoy Twitter. She’s listed tons of information and linkage on other applications that work along with and boost the Twitter experience.

While I’m on the subject of Twitter check out these cool web comics by Rob Cottingham from Social Signal. His web comic Noise To Signal has been nominated for the 2008 Canadian Blog Awards.

Twitter does seem kind of pointless, but it is addictive!

I'm a Doer, which is so hysterically wrong I might have to post the results in my blog.

And I'm staying away from Twitter.

Megan said...

I'm an Artist. It was so suprisingly *right* that I had to post the results in my blog. Odd how that is, isn't it?

Ann said...

Apparently I'm a "Doer" (I'm so not a doer, and that description is pretty much the opposite of me).

It's been a busy week on Twitter alright. If you're looking for more tools for Twitter than are in J. Kaye's post, you can check out my list here.

Twitter is the craze now! I am there too! and was reminded of it after i read Bethany's post abt it :D

Lenore said...

I also got Doer... which my husband laughed at. "Active outdoors?" Ha!

Rob Cottingham said...

Thanks for passing on the link to Noise to Signal - I'm glad you like the cartoons! (And welcome to Twitter. There's a surprisingly short distance between "What the hell is this good for?" and "I'm giving up sleeping and sex so I have more time to tweet.")

Jeane said...

Huh. I got a Mechanic. What's with that? I don't know if it fits me or not.

jessi said...

I got "Performer," which is pretty close. I also posted the results on my blog. Not on my Twitter page, though, because I can't remember the user name or password I picked out when I signed up for it. :)

Serena said...

Bet you can't wait to see my results...I'll post them at the blog today.

Luanne said...

Well Joanne - I'm a mechanic too!
As for the twitter - it looks like a lot of fun and I have an account, but I'm still in the figuring out stage....

Shana said...

Joanne, I'm a "Do-er!"

Love the new blog design.

Did you do it yourself?

Yes, now that I have found Twitter, my Google Reader has tons of posts...lol! I need to catch up. I think it will take all week before I am finished reading them all. ;)

Love this typealyzer thingy. I am going to have to give it a go!

J. Kaye said...

Don't ya just love comments like the one download free tax forms made? (LOL) That's the downside of blogging.
